It’s curious to see how cultures change. In more primitive times, alcohol was an integral part of society, particularly in the rituals and forms of worship. More recently, some societies have become more puritan and, even though drinking wine is a part of the Christian religious ceremony, alcohol consumption is considered a sin. Indeed, at its peak, the Temperance Movement was able to force the introduction of Prohibition. Why has alcohol earned this level of disapproval?
In the short term, the answer lies in the first effects when you drink. As soon as the alcohol is absorbed into your bloodstream, it affects the way your brain works. There’s a mild euphoria and the normal inhibitions are weakened. Memory and the ability to concentration are reduced. Physical coordination slowly disappears as the heart rate increases.
Alcohol causes blood vessels to dilate and this causes a drop in blood pressure in the body and this may force you to breathe more rapidly. All this affects thinner people more quickly. Women are also affected more quickly because their bodies contain less water. In the long term, steady drinking reduces the level of testosterone in men, shrinks the testicles and causes erectile dysfunction. There can be permanent brain damage, heart disease and anaemia. Excessive drinking is linked to liver damage and cancer.
It is possible that this could cause a sudden drop in blood pressure and other unwanted side effects if you take alcohol and Levitra at the same time. More importantly, if you have been drinking too much for too long, the Levitra is not going to help restore lost libido and hard erections. Once the damage is done, Levitra is not the cure.
Indeed, ironically, the alcohol started off working as an aphrodisiac, putting you in the mood for sex and dilating your blood vessels so that more blood was flowing into your penis. But if you drink too much, the brain messaging system and physical coordination is affected. What should have been a success is spoiled by having too much alcohol in your bloodstream. The answer as a younger man is to cut down on the amount you drink. This will give you a longer sex life.
